Installation prerequisites for NetBackup on PowerHA cluster for AIX
Verify that PowerHA and the current NetBackup Enterprise Server version support your hardware. For a list of supported storage devices, visit the following Web site. Also consult the PowerHA documentation.
Verify that supported version of AIX is installed.
Verify that supported version of PowerHA is correctly installed and configured. It also must pass cluster verification and synchronization.
Physically connect the robotic devices and tape devices to each node where you want to install NetBackup). Connect devices by SCSI or Fibre Channel . Use OS commands to verify that all the devices are connected properly. Refer to the NetBackup Device Configuration Guide.
Make sure that each node in the cluster, where you want to install NetBackup, is SSH equivalent. As the root user you need to be able to perform a remote logon to each node in the cluster without entering a password. This ability is only necessary for installation, upgrades, and configuration of the NetBackup server and any NetBackup options. When installation and configuration are complete, SSH can be disabled.
There must be a pre-existing file system available for use by the NetBackup resource group that is configured on all nodes. This file system must be resident on a volume group that is accessible to all nodes where you want to configure NetBackup. It must not be configured as a resource for an existing PowerHA resource group. It must not be configured to mount at boot time on any node.
Verify that you have a service IP address and an associated name (virtual name) to configure for NetBackup. This name and address must be present in the /etc/hosts file on all nodes before you install NetBackup.
If you use IPAT by IP Replacement for your service address, then it must be configured in PowerHA. The service address must be configured before you start installing NetBackup. The service address must not already be assigned to a resource group. This configuration must be done before you install NetBackup.
If you use IPAT by IP aliasing, you do not need to configure the service address in PowerHA before you install NetBackup. The service address must conform to the restrictions that are described in topic entitled "Planning Cluster Network Connectivity" of the PowerHA Planning and Installation Guide. If you have already configured the service, it must not be assigned to a resource group already.
Before you configure NetBackup, the cluster must be stable and able to complete a successful verification and synchronization.
Verify that you have the current NetBackup Enterprise Server version installation program and a valid license key.
